I meant to listen live at ATL sports radio, for a little more talk in detail Monday.... I still can but rather do it fresh after a win, lol
Where the offseason has more buzz happens.

After a disappointing game last week in Seattle we play at home and host the San Diego Chargers.
Our Falcons are a 6.5 point favorite.

Brutal part of the schedule is behind us (should be 5-1 after it but 4-2 is very good nonetheless). I expect wins in the next 3 games in a row.

The Chargers concern me.
I expect the game to be very close tomorrow or the Chargers to win as an underdog. I believe we're going to wear our throwback all black jerseys.

4-3 now. Game against Green Bay would be great to have but it's not really a must win. The following Thursday's game against Tampa Bay might end up deciding the division though.

As encouraging as the loss to SEATTLE on the road was...that home loss to a struggling Chargers team was equally disappointing.

Hoping we can take one from GB and prevent a spiral similar to last years mid-season swoon.

Great win against Tampa Bay.
This year has been special thus far even with a couple of questionable losses.

6-4 heading into the bye week. I have games against the Cardinals, Rams, 49ers and Saints as should be wins, and the ones against KC and Carolina as probable losses. That should be more than enough to win us the division.

Also: Vic Beasley leads the NFC with 9.5 sacks, and is just 0.5 sacks back of first place in the entire NFL (Dee Ford; Lorenzo Alexander)

Beasley and Keanu Neal are tied for the league lead in forced fumbles (with Bruce Irvin) at 4 apiece.

Division champs with a game left to spare!

Game against the Saints remains a must win however, because 1) it's the Saints, and 2) since Seattle lost yesterday (Karmic retribution for their cheating against us in Seattle; much thanks to Arizona) we can clinch the 2-seed and a first round bye (!!!!!!) with a victory. Let's get it done boys!!

Some news related to the Saints:



NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is "mutual interest" between the Rams and coach Sean Payton.
Payton has been linked to coaching trades with various teams, including the Giants, Colts, and 49ers most recently, over the past few years. Payton was born in California, but grew up in Illinois. He's been openly flirting with other teams for a while now, and Saints GM Mickey Loomis may decided now is the time to trade him after another failed season. New Orleans hasn't made the playoffs since 2013. The Rams don't have many 2017 draft picks to deal for Payton.

Today we face Seattle in the divisional playoff game. Our beloved Falcons are favored to win by 4 points but the line is now at 6. I like us to get revenge on Seattle after they beat us during the regular season.
GO FALCONS!!!
